Are Mars Bars Vegan?

October 20, 2020

If you’ve got a craving for one of the best selling chocolate bars in the UK but thinking are Mars bars vegan, well you’re not alone, it’s up there with one of the most common questions people ask when it comes to chocolate and veganism.

The answer to the question simply is at this current time they are not vegan but are vegetarian, not good news for vegans and this is down to their use of milk in the product. There is a some good news though as there are alternatives you can buy or make as listed below.

These chocolate bar/biscuits are also not suitable for vegans as they contain milk, as with the above they can be eaten by vegetarians.

A similar answer to both of the above, the method that Mars (the producers of Twix) use when making these mean they use milk products. So unless you’re a vegetarian then you won’t be able to eat these if you are vegan.

Will Mars make a Vegan Mars bar?

Mars have launched Vegan Galaxy chocolate which is a good sign because if they have done that and it’s a success, which it looks like it has been there’s no reason why they may not introduce a vegan version of the popular Mars bar.
